Three types of volcanos

The first volcano is the composite. They are very explosive. When they explode, it shoots out violently. It shoots out lava, ash, and gases.

Shield Volcano

A shield volcano poors out lava like a thick river. It destroys anything in its path. But don't worry! It goes so slow you can move out of the area you are in and get away safe. Shield volcanos make small mountians. They are wide, rounded, and smooth.

Cinder Cone Volcano

A cinder cone volcano explodes one time and quickly. It explodes lava, ash, and gases in tiny bits. When the lava cools off it turns into igneous rock.
